On Sunday we celebrated the third Sunday of Lent. Our Lenten theme is “Let light shine in the darkness”. Today let’s focus on light. Just like the sun provides light and warmth for our physical world, likewise Jesus provides light and warmth for our spiritual world. We can turn to Jesus, the light of the world, in times of need.
Thank you for being the light of the world.
Help us to turn to you
during the good times and the difficult times.
During this Lenten time,
help us to become the best versions of ourselves.
Through Christ our Lord,
Main Entrance - Ms. Chan
South Entrance - Mrs. Constant
THEODORE COURT CASE APPEAL DECISION
On February 25, 2021, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed Good Spirit (Public) School Division’s application for leave to appeal the Theodore case to the Supreme Court of Canada. This means that the unanimous decision of the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal that overturned the April 2017 trial decision stands. Good Spirit has exhausted their legal options, and the decision of the Appeal Court remains the law in Saskatchewan which can be considered a victory for both religious and parental rights and freedoms.
Background information on the Theodore case can be found at www.opencatholiceducation.ca.
The letter from our board chair is in Edsby in the information (the River) section.
